The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master

I'd read some interesting articles with the authors over the past few years, so I had high hopes for this book. Unfortunately I was underwhelmed. Lot's of interesting ideas, but most of them require significant research before being usable. If you're a senior developer then this book will make you think, but I'd hesitate recomending it to fresh grads: too many cool neat ideas, not enough time spent talking about when they are appropriate.

I'm not sure this book would be a big help on the road from Journeyman to Master.

- Peace
